Reflector Telescopes

OPT provides an extremely wide selection of reflector telescopes that are suited for an incredibly diverse range of uses. A reflector telescope refers to any telescope that uses one or more curved mirrors to reflect light and form an image. This results in images that are free of chromatic aberration, which is one of the main issues to plague models of telescope that do not utilize reflecting designs. One of the main benefits of the reflector design is that it enables a very wide diameter objective. This means that reflector telescopes are capable of being made much larger than comparable refractors, meaning that it is easier to make a reflector capable of gathering more light. What this translates into for you is the highest level of resolution and detail possible. Almost all the major telescopes used in astronomy research are reflectors. Reflecting telescopes come in many design variations and may employ extra optical elements to improve image quality or place the image in a mechanically advantageous position.
